601 Standpipe Piezometer

Solinst Canada

The Solinst Model 601 Standpipe Piezometer is designed to be placed within a drilled hole to provide a filtered inlet point. The pointed PVC tip is also suitable for pushing into very loose sands at the base of a borehole, a stream, or into very loose tailings pond sediments.

The 601 Standpipe Piezometer is excellent for metals sampling, as it is composed of a preformed Vyon tube set inside a perforated PVC piezometer tip. The Model 601 is also well suited for water level monitoring, permeability measurements, air sparging, construction control, de-watering drainage operations, and slope stability investigations, etc.

The 601 Standpipe Piezometer connects to the surface with 3/4″ Sch. 40 PVC (0.804″ ID x 1.050″ OD) plain end extensions, using slip couplings. Reducer couplings can also be used to connect to other sizes of riser pipe or casing. The standard 601 Standpipe Piezometer lengths available are: 6″, 1ft, 2ft and 3ft (15cm, 30cm, 60cm and 90cm).

Solinst also offers the Model 615 stainless steel Drive-Point Piezometer, which is designed to be driven directly into the ground using a slide hammer.
